VITROVEX glass spheres used in Canadian Seabed Observatory

A major new seabed observatory that will provide critical information about earthquake and tsunami hazards is to be deployed offshore Vancouver, Canada, using long endurance acoustic sensing technology supplied by Sonardyne International Ltd. Sonardyne, in turn, uses VITROVEX glass spheres to host their Fetch AZA subsea sensor logging nodes to measure depth changes in 2,500m to 4,000m water depth.
